Plaza Towers Condos – Downtown Grand Rapids Condos


Plaza Towers Condos Plaza Towers Condos are located at the corner of Monroe Ave and Fulton St, right in the heart of downtown Grand Rapids. Plaza is right across the street from The Bob, which also has the comedy club – Dr. Grins, the dance club – Crush and some really great restaurants. The Van Andel Arena is right across Fulton St and is connected by one of Grand Rapids’ unique features, the downtown Skywalk.


The Skywalk is over 2 miles of elevated, covered walkways that connect the Van Andel Arena to the south with Devos Performance Hall to the North. It connects all of the buildings and Parking ramps in between, including Plaza Towers. In the middle of a downpour or blizzard, you can enjoy any of the shows, events and concerts at the Arena or any of the concerts and exhibitions at Devos Hall or anything in-between without having to bundle up or use your car.


One of the features of Plaza Towers condos that I always enjoy when I am Plaza Towers Condominiumshowing these units is the view. It doesn’t matter what side of the building you are on, the views are incredible. My preference is the western view, which offers breath-taking sunsets, and views of the Grand River but the southern views also offer you views of the Grand River and portions of the city. Eastern views show you downtown Grand Rapids and this view is my second favorite. It has grown on me because there is a lot of energy in the city and you can feel it even up there.


Other amenities that Plaza Towers offer are 2 workout facilities (one is exclusive to the condo), a full size – heated indoor pool and hot tub. A large outdoor deck area facing the Grand River with grilling and patio chairs, tennis courts, basketball and track. Most of the units come with 2 covered parking spots, there is a concierge at the front entrance where there is a dry-cleaning pick-up and the building has excellent security.


Plaza Towers Condos Amenities Many of the condos at Plaza Towers have been updated. There are 1, 2 and a few 3 bedroom units available from ~650 sq/ft all the way up to the ~1800 sq/ft penthouse condo units. Even in this slow market, there is a demand for condos at Plaza Towers and they are selling. Since January 2007, 23 units have sold in every price range (8 this year) and there are typically about ~17 condos available at any given time. One of the drawbacks here is the high association fee. It is based on square footage and for 1000 sq/ft you are looking at ~$550/mo. That’s a lot of money to carry on top of your mortgage and it is the main reason that Plaza Towers condos don’t sell even more.
